This massive and austere five-meter (16.4-feet) tall and 100-meter (328-feet) wide wall runs along one side of the Parc des Bastions , within the University grounds. Its construction began in 1909, the 400th anniversary of Calvin's birth. The wall is dedicated to the whole Reformation Movement and its four leading figures: Jean Calvin (1509-1564), Theodore de Bèze (1513-1605), John Knox (1513-1572) and Guillaume Farel (1489-1565). The texts and figures sculpted in this wall relate 150 years of the history of Protestantism.
